Nigel - I looked at the first few coments and they certainly weren't all negative!
Don't know if my thought is good but, is Andy telling too much ?
I mean, it's nice for us fans to know about "the man behind the racquet". His honesty is great but the things he tells, aren't they ammo for his opponents to shoot at him ? Or even for the press ?
I don't know about France, but certain sections of the British media and the public revel in putting sports celebrities down given the slightest pretext, although Andy does seem to attract more flak than most, all because he made a flippant remark about England and the World Cup in 2006, which wasn't intended to be heard by the media anyway. Fortunately much of that changed when he lost to Federer at Wimbledon in 2012 where giving way to his emotions earned him a lot of sympathy because he showed that he was actually human after all and that he really did care about winning the title. The rest, of course, is history.
